    I worked at Ross Stores full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    20 percent discount that's doubles 2 times a year to 40 percent, most workers were good people who worked hard

    Cons

    Management was lazy and shifted their responsibilities, low pay for alot of work, scheduling was bad; always cut your hours with short notice

    Pros

    Discount, flexible schedule, easy to learn register functions since they are soooo old, and they have nice loss prevention employees.

    Cons

    Part time so maximum of 25 hours but most part time people have 12-13. Too fast paced, horrible customer service. Horrible communication. Training wasn't very good. Prices are low and the discount is good but honestly i could get the same number of items cheaper on some department stores sale days or coupon days.

    Advice to Management

    Don't stand over someone when training them or letting them do register for the first time most people don't like that... Don't try to guilt trip people for not wanting to work there any longer its pointless... ✌

    I have been working at Ross Stores full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    decent advancement possibilities
    good on paper the policies and manuals sound great
    non-store mgt seem fair and evenhanded
    the store will hire almost anyone

    Cons

    low pay no hours
    non-store mgt wont respond to concerns of employees in the stores
    bias is rampant in the stores
    very low morale
    not enough payroll to make the stores effective
    you are expected to be available all day everyday, so you cant have a life

    Advice to Management

    talk below store mgr without them around; find out about the low morale
    you get what you pay for; minimal wages get you a minimal effort
